I am quite fond of this $29 Apple watch band.
The ease of swapping bands is one of the things that makes an Apple Watch an effective fitness tracker. This is my 'elegant' watch band. My daughter, an 11 year-old fashionista, says it is her favorite.
Shortening the bracelet was a bit of a thing. It may just be my eyes, because this got a lot easier when I started to work under my desktop magnifier.
